Spring Was Short! Here Comes Summer


Area streams rose swiftly on Tuesday and again on Wednesday after a series of storms moved over the already saturated Endless Mountains. Meshoppen Creek coursed swiftly through the borough on Wednesday as Tunkhannock Creek briefly breached it’s banks at Lazy Brook Park. The Susquehanna River at Meshoppen crested just over 18 feet (flood stage is 27 ft) on Wednesday evening and should continue to drop into the weekend.

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
